Sarah Braden, AmeriCorps/RSVP Program Coordinator


I am Sarah Braden, the ACS/RSVP Program Coordinator at the United Way Great River Region. I am a graduate from Western Illinois University where I earned my Bachelor’s in Communications. I have had a variety of background in my work history that I think will help me succeed in this role. I also am a committee member for the Quincy to Peoria St. Jude run. I have a very personal family story that has brought this organization near and dear to my heart. I enjoy volunteering and fundraising for this organization every year. I believe it is important to give back to organizations that make such a big impact in our communities.

I was born and raised in Quincy, Illinois. I met my husband Ross of almost 12 years in college which has brought me back to his home of Lee County. We currently live in West Point and have 2 beautiful girls.

I enjoy cooking, working in my yard, and pretty much anything that allows me to be outdoors with my family.

I look forward to working to help make a difference in our community.
